Gold added to its sparkle as the price jumped Rs 76 per 10 grams in special "Diwali Muhurat' trading today.


Increased buying activity driven by the ongoing festive seasonal demand amid firm overseas trend on the auspicious occasion of 'Diwali' and beginning of Hindu Samvat year 2074 supported gold prices, traders said.


In line with gold, silver rebounded on increased off-take by coin makers and other consuming industries.
